Many Making Center spaces are open, with adjusted availability. At this time, general campus access is available to all Parsons students regardless of program or year level. All students — regardless of their vaccination status — are required to take a PCR COVID-19 test within 7 days prior to visiting campus for the first time this summer. Orientations for Summer 2021 will be offered on a very limited basis. In most cases, students will retain their Spring 2020 authorization status.
On Campus Space / Equipment Use
Open work space in the Making Center is currently accessible for all Parsons students who have submitted the required testing. The use of most on-campus tools and equipment requires prior orientation or training.
Equipment Checkout (Contactless)
Equipment and tool checkouts are available for off-campus use for up to 7 days (with appropriate orientation and training). You may be required to complete an online consultation with a technician beforehand.
Submission-Based Project Pick-Up
For the 2020-21 academic year, students may submit work digitally to be produced for pick-up in select labs, shops, and studios. Services include printing, laser cutting, 3D printing, CNC, and more.
